. legend has it that richard nixon heard that jfk was not going to get makeup from cbs for that debate, and so nixon said, well, i won't have any makeup either, then. even though he was running a 102 degree fever and not only was nixon ill that day, it turned out that when jfk turned down the cbs makeup offer, it was because he apparently had his own makeup arrangements already made. and so we got jfk with makeup and no fever, we got richard nixon with no makeup and a fever. what we got on tv in the first televised presidential debate in our nation's history was beauty and the beast. right? of course, jfk went on to win that election that year, whether or not it was because of the debate, i don't know, but thus was born the entire school of punditry that says it's all about the optics and watching things with the sounds off and all that existentially exhausting stuff we still say today. but here is the relevant context for understanding what happened last night. when mitt romney beat president obama in last night's televised debate. so the first televised presidential debate that we ha
. 25% said president obama. a cbs poll says 46% of uncommitted voters said romney had the stronger performance. 22% said it was the president. the headline in this mornings usa today, romney seizes offense on obama's record. romney takes fight to obama. after a handshake in the middle of the stage and talk of the president's 20th wedding anniversary, they got down to business with details on taxes and debt and what is best for this country's middle class. >> this is where there's a difference because governor romney's plan calls for a $5 trillion tax cut on top of the bush tax cuts and military spending that the military hasn't asked for. it's $8 trillion. how we pay for that, reduce the deficit and make the investments we need to make without dumping those costs on to middle class americans is one of the central questions to this campaign. >> under the president's policies, middle income americans are buried. they are being crushed. their income has come down by $4,300. this is a tax in and of itself. call it the economy tax. it's been crushing. at the same time, gasoline prices d
debate a week from tonight in kentucky. derek. >> we'll be watching them all. cbs news has learned that investigators are looking into the possibility that a border patrol agent killed earlier this week died from friendly fire. nicholas ivie and two other agents came under attack just north of the border near birkz sbee, arizona. this word comes from mexican police as they've arrested two people. >>> d.c. police confirm they're investigating allegations that a guard sexually assaulted an inmate. sources tell wtop radio the allegations are that a guard removed an inmate from his cell, took him to an area where there are no security cameras and assaulted him. those sources also say a second guard witnessed the assault but did not report it. >>> tonight we've got a sketch of the man wanted for fondling at least five women in springfield. take a good look. the most recent attack was tuesday night. a woman was groped right in front of her daughter. another woman was assaulted on the same street two weeks earlier. detectives believe there could be additional victims, and they are asking,
romney won the contest. just 25 percent said president obama did. a cbs news poll of uncommitted voters who watched the debate was interesting. 46% of them say mitt romney won. 22% believe the president came out on top. 32% say it was a tie. so, it was a good night for governor romney indeed. now, what does this mean going forward? number one, the romney campaign is energized. it will be easier to raise money. number two, the president's attack ads on television against romney not going to be taken as seriously because the folks have seen the governor definite himself effectively. number three, president obama will lose some steam in the polls, and with the adoring media. but, and this is big: mr. obama will come back hard on october 16th. you can count on that. governor romney has to, again, be on his game. two more things. from the very beginning of the campaign, i said the debates will tell the tale. >> bill: what mitt romney absolutely has to do, if he hopes to defeat president obama is win the three debates. now, we have seen the governor debate well and we have seen him get his bu

captioning sponsored by cbs >> i don't think government can solve all our problems but government's not the source of our problems, either. >> i have a plan. i have five steps that will get this economy going. >> i'm not fighting to create democratic jobs or republican jobs, i'm trying to create american jobs. >> i will not raise taxes on middle-income americans. >> the debates will matter to some undecided voters. >> the debates could decide the election for either one of us. >> from denver, colorado, here is scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. we're about to see the one thing we haven't seen in this long campaign for the presidency-- the candidates side by side. it's the first of three debates between the democratic incumbent-- 51-year-old barack obama-- and his republican challenger 65-year-old mitt romney. it comes 34 days before the election-- though early voting is already under way in many states. the focus tonight is domestic issues, including the economy, still struggling to recover from the great recession. polls show the race is very close nationally, but in swing st
from other news outlets pointing out that the video has been public for a little while. from cbs -- host: lets get back to the calls. mary, republican warned. caller -- caller: i would ask president obama what his plans are to solve the fiscal crisis. not a single democrat has approved his budget in congress. i want to know what his plans are for medicare. he has already stolen half of $1 trillion from that, which affects seniors. he has already taxed the middle- class. host: what would you ask mitt romney? caller: i am pretty sure i can see clearly what his plans are. he is going to help the small business to create jobs and work on the economy. i agree with what he wants to do. host: where are you calling from? caller: san antonio, texas. host: indiana, republican line, hello. caller: i would like to ask president obama y he thinks that it is not necessary to have a voter id for voting in this country when you need an identification for just about anything that is even minor, of minor importance, such as getting a checkbook, writing a check, getting a prescription filled, getti
party and richard nixon. and though my colleague from cbs and is referred to there has asked, i did not feel richard nixon did a complete answer. he referred to me as a non- essential question or some words of that effect. he did not answer it well. it stuck with him. it was the party he was confused of not having the confidence of president -- of president eisenhower, because of a great way that is what the republican line was, experience that counts. >> you were free to pursue that question, right? >> no vetting of questions. i heard about the debate the day before when i was covering nixon and the south. i got on the train that went to chicago, and went in on the following monday to go wbbm cbs affiliate in chicago. we sat in a row, and all we did was introduce ourselves to the camera. our producer went on to produce "60 minutes." that was it. >> in that clip richard nixon looks very confident and gave you a long answer. clearly anticipated some part of this. what we remember was the recollection that he was sweating heavily, nervous and prepare. you were in the room in that part
as beard stick. he called frank stanton head of cbs news into the control room to see the stark disappearance of the candidates. he called ted rogers and said he was satisfied the way nixon looked. that's not the way the rest of the country saw it, when nixon started sweating through that beard stick. the next venue was nbc studios where we produce "hardball." wilson arrived with the kennedy brothers to figure out something was up. someone set the temperature to freezing. felt like a meat locker. jack said, what the hell is this? wilson remembers racing down to the basement looking for the air conditioning unit. there was a guy standing there that ted rogers put there for nixon and he said, don't let anybody change this pip said, get out of the way or i'm going to call the police. he immediately left and i changed the air conditioning back to normal. wilson understand the game and how it was going to be played. the candidates had their jobs to do, so did their handlers. he said his opponent, he said, he wanted to keep his job because of the screw-up that happened in the first de
's the problem for those who think this is an intellectual discussion on c-span. today the new poll came out cbs, 56%. the 13%, the die-hards. they were going to say he looked better. >> the big question is, why? i think if the president cares as passionately about his vision as he says, if he believes in it as deeply as he does, then he needs to defend it more forcefully and specifically than he did tonight. it almost seemed like he was irritated that the fact that things were being questioned. >> and i thought he got -- if he had stepped back the first time the guy said i people about people on social security. he should have said, 47% of the krif is a bunch of moochers. before i came along, 40 million people had no health care. they were all herded into the e.r. and that's where they would be there if it wasn't for me and the people helped me do it and that's where you are. you want to go back to the e.r. how dare you say we have contending or offering different health care plans. one gay has it and one guy doesn't. >> i'm going to say, look -- i'm acting like the moderator here. >> i think y
you think in the morning there is a conference call between abc, nbc and cbs and the "new york times" to decide what they are going to report on obama? >> don't put tblords my mouth. they know what the news of the day is and they choose to ignore it. the on time that they choose not to ignore it is when their access is threatened. you saw the media actually criticize president obama for not meeting with foreign leaders because they got snubbed for the ladies at the view. when they miss the access themselves that's when they complain. >> if you were ahead you wouldn't be having these arguments. >> i highly doubt it. martha: thanks so much, you guys. bill: bob is going to screen something like "coming up! ". the battle over obama-care could be headed back to the u.s. supreme court and what in the supreme court and what in the world would cause this. >> it seems like you guys -- al? sea turtle. what's your bedtime? do you believe in space aliens? ...i love puppies. hash browns or home fries? home fries. do you like my dress? why can't you guys ask good questions like this?

people, our polls, the cbs poll, our by three to one showed that the president lost and romney won. >> well, you know what the history is here of the first debate against an incumbent president, five out of the last six times the challenger was perceived as winning. the first time you're on stage next to the president of the united states it adds stature. we haven't seen any fundamental shift in the dynamic of this race. it's been close and competitive for a year and a half. it will be won in key states. that's where the president is today in denver, in wisconsin, making his case about the economic choice in this election. >> i thought romney was pretty effective in turning around what could have been a liability into an asset last night on the whole issue of health care reform. listen to this. watch this. >> i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i liked the fact that in my state we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did instead was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. as a matter of fact, when massachusetts did somethin
university "new york times" cbs news poll shows obama leading in ohio, florida and pennsylvania. it matches our own marist polling which shows the president leading in all nine swing states. joining me now, peter brown, the assistant director of the quinnipiac university polling institute. peter, i want to ask you about historically speaking have the polls been largely accurate? >> yes. the polls have been quite accurate over time. now, everybody likes to point to the 1948 election when the polls said that thomas dewey would win the election and he didn't. harry truman did. that was 40 years ago when polling was in its infancy. polls are very good at telling you what the situation is at the time they're taken, not a week from thursday, not two months from tomorrow. they're good for then. >> that snapshot, right. some of the gop complain the pollsters are oversampling democrats in the swing states. are they overestimating democratic turnout for november? can you explain how this works? >> sure. the key is that we and most of the other major polls do not weight by party. that is, there is no

: according to a cbs news poll last night, about half say romney won. but michelle, 56% say that their opinion of romney changed for the better. only 13% say their opinion of mr. obama changed for the better. in the meantime, you know what? president obama showed that he was a little thin skinned last night and, in fact, told the moderator how to do his job, but first before we see that, let's see mitt romney on the tear last night. >> i don't want to cost jobs. my priority is jobs. so what i do is i bring down the tax rates, lower deductions and exemptions, the same idea behind bowles simpson. get the rates down, to create more jobs because there is nothing better for getting us to a balanced budget than have more people working, earning more money, paying more taxes. that's by far the most effective and efficient way to get this budget balanced. >> jim, you may want to move on to another topic. >> steve: up with of the things about the president last night is for all of the many points that mitt romney had right up here, and he was able to effectively communicate them, the president had noth
review the mortar damage to the u.s. annex in benghazi as captured in a series of images taken by cbs news. based on the angles of impact and fragmentation patterns, these analysts concluded there were at least two mortar teams to score district hits, all obvious evidence of a terrorist attack. the intelligence officials then used these outside assessments to rebut internal claims from other officials that these benghazi murders were just a spontaneous mob action that grew out of control. and the very next day matt olsen, chief of the national counterterrorism center, testified publicly that the acts were an act of terror. @james rosen, fnc, i'll link you to my long form report on this subject on the fox news web site. jenna: james, thank you very much. jon: well, an october surprise rocks the 2012 campaign. president obama shocking his supporters this week, becoming really his own worst enemy in the first presidential debate. but it was only one night, so which candidate won the week? we'll take a look. jenna: also, drivers face a big surprise at the pump. gas prices jumping to sky-h
of this race is a national disgrace. [cheers and applause] you know, we have a message for cnn, abc, cbs. you will not decide the outcome of this election. we, the people, will decide the outcome of this election. we live in a country that is getting harder to recognize every day. led by a president who mocks our values, be littles' our faith, and is threatened by our freedoms. you know it and i know it. barack obama is another washington, d.c. politician who will say what ever it takes to get elected. do not believe him. do not believe the slick campaign ads. do not believe his cheerleader friends and the media. do not let your friends believe it either. barack obama has not changed washington. he cannot change washington because barack obama is what is wrong with washington. [cheers and applause] thankfully, we have a choice. the choice could not be more clear. on behalf of the 4 million men and women of the national rifle association and tens of millions of nra supporters across the country, it is my honor to announce the and are a's endorsement of mayor romney and paul ryan for president
to the very soul when you say "you bought that?" >> morley safer of cbs on walter cronkite and journalism today. "washington journal" continues. host: we are back with our "america by the numbers" segment. the overall unemployment rate has dropped percentage -- 7.8%. if you look to those sectors, manufacturing is what we're focusing on -- is not doing as robustly as other sectors. manufacturing employment edged down 16,000 jobs on net. the jobs in computer and electronic parts and printing and related activities. we will listen to the candidates and come back oand talk about their proposals for the manufacturing sector. let's start with president obama. [video clip] >> what i talked about last night was eight new economic patriotism, and patriotism that is rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle-class. that means we export more jobs -- export more products and we outsource fewer jobs. over the last three years, we came together to reinvent a dying auto industry that is on top of the world.
